Hakaru is a simply-typed probabilistic programming language, designed for easy specification of probabilistic models and inference algorithms. This type of language is useful for the development of machine learning algorithms and stochastic modeling.

Example from the web:
def pulls(strength real): normal(strength, 1) def winner(a real, b real): a_pull <~ pulls(a) b_pull <~ pulls(b) return (a_pull > b_pull) alice <~ normal(0,1) bob <~ normal(0,1) carol <~ normal(0,1) match1 <~ winner(alice, bob) match2 <~ winner(bob, carol) match3 <~ winner(alice, carol)
